Berlin – “Tell us about the GDR! How did you live? ”I stared at the person opposite, the husband of a friend. Like almost everyone in my circle of acquaintances, he comes from the west. I cleared my throat before I started to answer: “You know, you are the first who has ever asked me that.” what role the FDJ played (the blouses were uncool, the events often very interesting), what we did in our free time (cinema, theater, disco, sauna). I have to think of this conversation every year when the fall of the wall suddenly spreads across all channels.
